Having never made doll shoes before, I was a little intimidated. Shoes for wellie Wisher are not easy to find,so I knew I had to try and make some. The instructions were excellent. When they were finished I said to myself well that was easy. On my way to making more, thankful for all I learned and shoes we now have. Paired the polka dot shoes up with the sailorette dress and hat. Great fun and with good results.
I haven’t had a chance to try out the pattern but it was recommended to me as a good place to start making doll shoes
After a little practice, the pattern goes together neatly. The shoes are very nice. I used Cricut faux suede rather than vinyl. I used the Cricut to cut out the clogs and the cuts were perfect. I also used grommet slips behind the grommets and the straps hold much better.
This is a great pattern! I've made several other 18" doll shoes in the past using other commercial patterns,but never had shoes come out so well before. Several of my sticking points when having made shoes before were addressed in this pattern and it had lots of handy tips--some I had discovered before through trial and error and others that were new to me. Very professional looking shoes made with this pattern.
